New Blog post on Shakespeare in the Arab World

"Next, out-takes from the aspirational Arabic Shakespeares piece on Al Araby Al Jadeed — an email Q&A with Shakesbeare scholar (my apologies) David Moberly.
Is the Arab Shakespeare tradition in film as interesting as on stage?"

"Last summer PhD graduate student David Moberly was awarded funds to hire a researcher in Egypt to seek out material about Arabic translations of Shakespeare. Moberly used the findings to write a chapter for his dissertation project, "The Taming of the Tigress: Gender, Shakespeare, and the Arab World.” This summer, Moberly received two awards—a Union Pacific Research Grant and a Graduate Research Partnership Program fellowship—to travel to Cairo himself. His goal? Investigating Shakespeare in early 20th-century Egypt (and, of course, scoping out the Sphinx)."

"This Egyptian cinematic production is an artistic re-creation of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, placing it in the context of 1960s Egypt. In it, Sayyid Amin, a country farm owner, conspires with Dr. Hasan Shukri, a young veterinarian and guest on his land, to tame his ill-mannered, wily granddaughter, Amira, and have her wed."
